Question by : refrigerator compressor lock up?
Per repair service man, he replaced the overload relay and compressor would still not function. Original problem was a frequent buzzing sound for short periods. Freezer and refrig compartment were not cooling.
Analysis was a locked up compressor that needs to be R & R. Kenmore (Maytag) bottom freezer, new in March 2002. Runs 6 months per year from Jan thru May and is shut down rest of year. Model 596.71814101 s/n 11158440ac
